lyrics

- VERSE 1 -
I was cotching in the park for most of the day
When this fly girl walked my way
She didn't notice me so I had to rectify that
Spoke to the mami hoping she would reply back.
She winked at me with her right eye
Wore a red dress with red boots knee high
Pink hair in a bob cut
Man, I'm thinking to myself, hooh yeah, I want her
Got talking, dropped a bit of dialogue
Guessed her favourite colour, she joked I was a mile off.
A smile crossed her face slowly
I think I won her time for her to get to know me
So we lounged and had a chat
Then she remembered there was somewhere else that she had to be at.
Mami ran along, as I watched her go
She told me to meet her back here same time tomorrow.

- CHORUS –
Called by any other name
She would still smell the same
But I’m starting to think she can’t be swayed
I just wanna settle down with you
Don’t wrap around my groove
Let’s cut to the chase
don’t you fade away

There she goes again
Leaving me hanging
There she goes again
Taking the hammer to my head

(ooh oohooh, ooh oohooh, oohooh ooh, ooh ooh oooohhhwwooooYEAH)

- VERSE 2 -
So, next day came around, I was laying down
Same spot I met her but she was no where to be found.
She arrived two hours late
I think she was surprised to see I was the type to wait.
But something seemed bait, she wasn't upbeat
I asked her what's wrong, she told me somewhat discreet
that there was something on her mind.
Another guy she find? Clearly, I was not blind.
But I was unwavering
Wanted to fully win her heart so I stayed in.
She must still like me, why else would she meet?
She could have aired me off, done, story complete.
There were still time and good chance,
so to strengthen my stance I passed her a glance
and opened out my hand. Here's what I wanna give you
A pair of link rings and hope we can continue.

- CHORUS 2 –
Called by any other name
She would still smell the same
But I’m starting to think she can’t be swayed
‘cause I (just) wanna settle down with you
Don’t wrap around my groove
Let’s cut to the chase
Don’t you fade away

- VERSE 3 -
It was the end of the week
That's when she came to me to speak.
The girl dropped a bombshell
But I had a feeling anyway, I knew this all too well
Though no lies from her sad eyes as she confessed
There was another guy with whom she was obsessed
To let me go she said was for the best
Well, that's the way it goes, I guess.
That's when I presumed that she
Would take off the bracelets and return them to me
But she turned to me, asking if she could keep them.
I asked why, she said it was to cherish our weekend.
I let her keep the rings with a bit of my heart
Bittersweet see-you-laters as I went to depart.
Respecting the path she chose,
My rose, my rose.

- CHORUS 3 -
There she goes again (called by any other name)
Leaving me hanging (she would still smell the same)
I just wanna settle down with you
Don’t wrap around my groove
Let’s cut to the chase
Don’t you fade away

- OUTRO -
(There she goes again, there she goes again, a- come on)
(There she goes again, there she goes again, a- come on)
Any other name
(There she goes again, there she goes again, a- come on)
Just the same
(There she goes again, there she goes again, a- come on)
There she goes again…
